About The Artist

Artist Statement

Photography is a very practical medium. A mixture of the right gear at the right subject at the right time weights mightily on the impact of the resulting capture. The Dark Energy of photography, the art in photography, is the constant flow of the photographer’s instinct, knowing, and subject tracking that exists and persists before and during the click of the shutter. If the moment is missed somehow, with instinct and knowing as no-shows, all the practicality, all the art, are of little help. The moment of capture, a shutter in time, is king.

Biography

Hi there… My name is John Andrew Murphy a.k.a. Johnny Murph, Murph, or just plain JAM. I answer to any and all. I am a people and places photographer located in Marin County. My creative journey started with my sense of sound and the ensuing lessons on how to read music and play a tune. As a teenager of the 80’s, my heros were guitar players – Eddie Van Halen, Randy Rhoads, Jerry Garcia – and my bedroom walls were adorned with poster size images of these musicians. Years later, I got a Canon film camera for Christmas, and I realized immediately that my sense of sight brought me as much joy and wonder as strumming my six string. And that is where I am today creatively – strumming chords and clicking shutters.

Still photographs play an essential role in all of our lives, and I work to make those images the best and longest lasting they can be. I am all about quality and service, whether I am capturing family memories, coaching a sitter for a professional headshot, printing a client’s past and present family memories, scanning and printing childhood memories, or teaching others how to capture and manipulate future memories.

And if you are looking for some beautiful, mostly local images for your home or business, be sure to visit my website.
